Lions demonstrate their commitment to sight conservation through eyeglass recycling, sight partnerships and countless other sight services such as SightFirst.  SightFirst launched in 1989 is Lions’ most ambitious and most successful initiative ever. Through this program Lions have restored sight to 7.3 million people through cataract surgeries, prevented serious vision loss for 20 million people and improved eye care services for hundreds of millions.  Lions have launched Campaign SightFirst II, with a goal of raising at least $150 million.
